E100-44: Proverbs 1:1 - 4:27: Where is wisdom to be found?




Most of Proverbs contains collections of proverbs (pithy sayings about life) but the book has a nine chapter prologue and a half chapter epilogue. The epilogue is a poem describing an ideal(ised) wife. The prologue seeks to motivate the student (a young male - notice all the "my son" language) to follow his mother's advice and live a faithful, respectable, respectful, honest life.

The last chapters sex up this motivational speech by picturing Wisdom as a woman, who should become the young man's fiancee and eventually bride.

The podcast though focuses on these chapters, with a short digression explaining what the Apocrypha is.
